Trump Deals With Rumors He Doesn't Get on With U.K. Prime Minister by Telling Her the U.S. Will Always 'Fight for You'

President Donald Trump has denied "false rumors" he is not on good terms with British Prime Minister Theresa May, arguing that the U.S. will "be there to fight for" the U.K. whatever happened.

As the pair met at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Trump reiterated that the U.S. and U.K. were on good terms, also praising May as "really great" for tackling the rumors.

"We love your country," Trump said in comments carried by The Hill. "We have the same ideals and there's nothing that would happen to you that we wouldn't be there to fight for you."

"We're on the same wave-length, I think, in every respect," Trump told May. "Some people don't necessarily believe that."

Trump's eagerness to present a united front with the U.K. leader comes against a backdrop of tension between the pair that resulted in an angry tweet from the president.

May, who visited Trump at the White House last year, had suggested Trump should not have shared an inflammatory video from far right party Britain First, prompting the president to lash out at May on social media.

"Don't focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom. We are doing just fine!" Trump said, despite having praised the special relationship between the U.S. and U.K., a message he repeated once again on Thursday.

Trump's comments come after it was reported this week that the president told May last year that he would not be visiting the United Kingdom unless she could "promise" a "warm welcome," according to a Bloomberg report on Wednesday morning.

While at the forum, the president is also set to deliver an address in Davos on Friday that has seen other attendees calling for a boycott or threatening to walk out mid-speech over comments trump made about people from "shithole" countries coming to the U.S.
